    In case anyone is wondering, the reason I have so many flower shots; I do wedding and party flowers freelance about every other week. I assist in doing the arrangements and take photos after it's all setup on location, so when I see a big beauty, I snap a few while I can.

    Anybody have any pictures that are really abstract and just kinda weird but awesome in the same way? I was thinking something simple though like a white room and a chair in the middle of it. Doesn't have to be that, but I just want something kinda weird but cool and abstract. It's for a website i'm making. :)

    kthxbye

    Saw some great 80 year old photos of mountain glaciers. The link also has some modern SLR comparatives. Why is it that an old wet film field camera is still outperforming a SLR? Was it a better photographer, incl. more skilled with the use of filters and polarisers and ready to wait until the lighting was right, whereas perhaps the modern photographer really isnt that good?

    What do you think? http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-south-asia-15216875

    (Apologies that this link is slow and has an annoying person saying "gobsmacked" all the time. How annoying is that?)

    There are different ways of looking at resolution when comparing digital to silver emulsion, and even though technically, film has a lot higher density of light sensitive particles, I think it's safe to say that a 24MP RAW image isn't going to present a striking difference with respect to film. In fact, the digital image is probably preferable in a lot of ways.

    I think the expertise of the photographer is certainly critical, but quality optics also make a huge difference. Give an average shutterbug some nice Zeiss lenses and the crap they come back with will still look damn good.

    I miss that in the mid-range DSLR's I've owned - Sony DSC-F828 and Canon Rebel T1i. The clarity and sharpness just aren't there compared to my old Zeiss Ikon.

    I know you can take a photo of anything, but what would you suggest to experiment on?
    I always seem to be shooting either scenes or close-ups of flowers...

    I take my camera with me Everywhere... you'll notice that you enjoy taking some types of pictures better than others.. plus look at other peoples photographs and find a style or effect that you like and learn how to do it. This will help you find your style or type of pictures you enjoy taking the most.

    This one was really good, especially the way that the light is behind you and it picks up the foaminess of the watersplash.

    The other one was just a little dark though - I wonder what it would look like if it was tweaked in Photoshop.

    These aren't the full resolution pictures. I couldn't upload them so I had to take screenshots.
